Xherdan Shaqiri won’t move to Liverpool FC from Stoke City this summer, ESPN FC pundit Alejandro Moreno has claimed.

The Reds are rumoured to be in the market to sign an attacker in the 2018 summer transfer window following their Champions League final disappointment.

Liverpool FC sold Brazil international Philippe Coutinho in a £142m deal to FC Barcelona in the January transfer window.

The Merseyside outfit still have the funds to reinvest in a new playmaker this summer to help fill the South American’s void.

Indeed, Liverpool FC lacked options off the bench in their 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League showpiece.

Shaqiri has been linked as a potential budget signing for the Reds following Stoke’s relegation to the Championship in 2017-18.

The Switzerland international’s work ethic was regularly criticised under Mark Hughes and Paul Lambert during a disappointing campaign.

ESPN FC pundit Moreno believes Shaqiri won’t move to Liverpool FC in the current transfer window.

“Shaqiri is not going to Liverpool,” Moreno told ESPN FC.

Liverpool FC signed Brazil international Fabinho in a £40m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco earlier this month.
